ANTISEMITISM: Biden’s pick for ambassador to Brazil railed against ‘the Jewish factor, it’s money’
Antisemitism Uncovered video on the antisemitic trope of greed.
Tell Pres. Biden to STOP the Nomination of Antisemite Elizabeth Frawley Bagley for Ambassador NOW!
"U.S. embassies are required to serve Americans visiting or living in the host country without discrimination. Ms. Frawley’s remarks raise serious, disqualifying concerns about how she will treat Jewish Americans visiting or living in Brazil. Moreover, Brazil has a significant Jewish community of over 120,000 people, well-integrated into all aspects of Brazilian society. It would be deeply insulting and distressing to this community to send a U.S. Ambassador to Brazil who has Bagley’s history of using ugly antisemitic tropes."
"Elizabeth Frawley Bagley (born July 13, 1952) is an American diplomat, attorney, political activist and philanthropist who is the nominee to serve as the next United States Ambassador to Brazil in the Biden administration."
"Bagley is a major political donor and fundraiser who "over the years [has] raised millions of dollars for Democratic candidates.""
"She resides in Washington, D.C. She also owns a house in Nantucket."

“‘The Jewish Factor, It’s Money’: Biden Ambassador Pick Under Fire for Anti-Semitic Tirade,” by Adam Kredo, Washington Free Beacon, June 22, 2022 5:45 pm
The Biden administration’s nominee to serve as the U.S. ambassador to Brazil spoke at length about the influence of Jewish money in politics, claiming the “Jewish lobby” exerts undue influence over the Democratic Party with its “major money.”
Elizabeth Frawley Bagley, a longtime diplomat and Democratic Party insider, is scheduled on Thursday to have her nomination advanced to the full Senate by the Senate Foreign Relations Committee. But Bagley’s comments about Jewish money in politics—tropes long considered anti-Semitic in nature—are raising red flags among Democratic and Republican members of the committee, senior congressional sources told the Washington Free Beacon.
Bagley, in a 1998 interview, a full copy of which was obtained by the Free Beacon, bemoaned “the influence of the Jewish lobby because there is major money involved.” She went on to claim “the Democrats always tend to go with the Jewish constituency on Israel and say stupid things, like moving the capital to Jerusalem always comes up.” Support for these Israel-related issues are due to “the Jewish factor, it’s money.” The interview was conducted by a historian at the Association for Diplomatic Studies and Training for an oral history project….
Bagley opened up about the “Jewish lobby” and its impact on Democratic Party politics in the 1998 interview. She was asked about “the Israeli influence” on the Clinton administration, where Bagley served as the ambassador to Portugal.
“There is always the influence of the Jewish lobby because there is major money involved,” Bagley said. “But, I don’t remember any major issues coming out on that, besides the usual ‘make Jerusalem the capital of Israel,’ which is always an issue in the campaign.”
Democrats, she said, “always tend to go with the Jewish constituency on Israel and say stupid things, like moving the capital to Jerusalem always comes up. Things that we shouldn’t even touch.”
“Jewish Democrats,” she continued, “were going to give their money to Clinton anyway and Jews are mostly Democrats on social issues.”
The “Jewish factor” is not about the raw number of electors who care about these issues, Bagley said, “it’s money.”
When questioned about these remarks during a May 18 confirmation hearing with the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, Bagley claimed they were the result of a “free-flowing discussion” with the interviewer.
“The language you used in regard to the Jewish community, Israel’s influence on our election, and Jewish money have me concerned,” Sen. Ben Cardin (D., Md.) said during the hearing. “The choice of words was fit into the traditional tropes of anti-Semitism.”
“I regret that you would think that it was a problem,” Bagley told Cardin. “I certainly didn’t mean anything by it. It was a poor choice of words, but it was something that the interviewer had asked me, prompted by something about politics.”
Bagley added that she is “very sorry about that choice of words.”…
